Oh how I yearn for thee

Time to merely be

Stop running to and fro

Less activity by saying NO.


Oh, please set me free

To live a natural me.

To rest, to relax,

To know no worry.


Like the rooted tree,

A simple key,

Which opens the door

To so much more

Of who I really long to be.


Like the gentle, expansive sea

Can I rest in your waters?

And sway to your decree?

As in a hammock with its crocheted edges enfolding me.


Can I learn to release attachments

My squeeze on life – the hold

Please guide me to the people and places

Where I can allow my full life to unfold.


Of time and endless appointments

All man-made, yet surreal

What if for once my calendar lay empty,

What would this reveal?

Ah for the life of simplicity

Where nothing can dare hide

Where bare truth can confide

Where peace and love reside.

This poem is from my eBook, Women at P.L.A.Y! Peace, Love and Acceptance of Yourself after 40
